2016 Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting

We bring Berkshire to you with our on-the-spot meeting coverage and analysis.

Mentioned: ,

Around 40,000 people made the pilgrimage to Omaha this year for the  Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) (BRK.B) annual meeting to hear Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger answer questions about their investments, succession planning, and more.

But if you didn't make it to this year's "Woodstock for Capitalists," Morningstar.com has the next best thing: on-the-ground coverage from Omaha.

We had a live blog of the entire meeting featuring insights from Morningstar’s Jim Sinegal, Dan Werner, and Jeremy Glaser. Our Berkshire analyst Gregg Warren was once again on the panel asking questions to Warren and Charlie, and we got his take on the event immediately afterward.

Ahead of the meeting, we had lots of additional coverage including our analysts' latest thinking on succession planning, valuation, and the energy headwinds facing the business today. We also took a look at fund managers who have successfully bought stocks in a Buffett style, and which "Buffett-like" stocks individual investors may want to look at today.
